Smith prides himself on being able to put mistakes and losses behind him quickly, pushing forward to the next challenge. This time, though, was different.
Following a debacle against the Green Bay Packers, some are starting to question the ability of the New York Jets coaching staff. After only two games this is a huge mistake.
The New York Jets return home to the Monday night stage after a disappointing loss to the Green Bay Packers. The Jets will be facing a banged up Chicago Bears team that somehow found a way to shock the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday night.
The Jets are rarely frauds. It’s worse—they’re teasers. They consistently give false hope, then smash it into a billion pieces, a la Sunday in Green Bay.
The New York Jets jumped out to a promising 18-point lead on Sunday only to watch it disintegrate throughout a very sloppy second half performance.
For a moment, it seemed as if the Jets had tied the Packers. Touchdown — Jeremy Kerley with about 5 minutes left to the game. One problem…
The formula for the New York Jets to beat the Green Bay Packers is quite obvious: establish the power running game on offense and apply consistent pressure on defense.
“I’m a competitor, so of course — I’m being honest, I’m being frank with you — it’s hard not going out on the field and starting and taking that first snap.”
Some Jets homer implied that Geno Smith is better than Eli Manning based on their Week 1 performances. You can’t deal with these people, so I merely report them to you.
On Sunday the Green Bay Packers look to get their first win of the season following a very disappointing effort against the Seattle Seahawks. The Packers will be facing a New York Jets team that dominated the Oakland Raiders with their power running game and stout defense.
Sure, Rex Ryan was happy to be 1-0 and saw some positives. He also knows the Jets should’ve cruised instead of holding on for a 19-14 victory against the Raiders.
Sure, it was just one game, but it was a telling game. There’s really no way around it: This Geno Smith is not the same player that some of you have grown to mistrust.
The Patriots being all alone in last place means absolutely nothing as far as the rest of the season is concerned. In terms of comedic value, however, it’s fantastic.
The New York Jets impressed next to no one with their 19-14 victory over the Oakland Raiders. Gang Green made several mistakes on both sides of the football while racking up 11 penalties. Luckily for the Jets the Raiders were starting a rookie quarterback that was overwhelmed by Rex Ryan’s defense.
With more weapons at his disposal, Smith and the Jets look for better things in his second season as they host the Oakland Raiders on Sunday.
